Every now and then, I get an email from a publication requesting a klt:image. Those are always great inbox discoveries. However, I have learned over the years to not get my hopes up too high-as they don't always pan out. But there are always those lovely few that do pan out and actually follow up by sending the publication to my doorstep. Yesterday, I received a magazine in the mail that was one of those "make my day" surprises. It was, burda style, a German sewing publication, that had requested images of my plush kitties awhile back. There is something sort of cool about seeing your products in a magazine that is written in a language that you don't speak. The translation is always entertaining.
One of the things that I have always found interesting about making "products" is that they tend to go in waves as far as popularity. The kitties in particular (the plush, mobiles, & tees) are forgotten about for awhile and then I will get inquiries and sales all at once. Ironically, I am frantically working on orders for 20 plush kitties and 2 kitty mobiles this week- and shipped off 3 kitty tees yesterday. This feature has funny timing- it is the week of the kitty...MEOWWW!
